Abstract
This proposal will develop new filter and guidance algorithms and demonstrate their effectiveness in a 6 degrees-of-freedom missile-target simulator. The new algorithms for the filters will be based on a)optimal estimation b)sliding mode c) neural networks and d)partcle filters. The guidance algorithms will be based on a)optimal guidance and b)sliding mode. Preliminary promising results on chosen techniques for demonstration. These methods will be tested for their robutness to estimation delay, target''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s evasive maneuvers and uncertainties in models and noise. The engagement scenarios will include the boost phase and the exoatmospheric phase.
